Create an itinerary including Hill 60
Hill 60 commemorates the site of a major British underground offensive that required Australian troops to tunnel deep in the earth. A concrete machine gun bunker still stands and some of the trenches have been restored so that you can get a feel for what it must have been like in the battle of Ypres. Much of the battlefield, which would have been muddy and covered in tunnels and trenches, has come alive again with trees and grass. Hike or bike along the trails that cut through the field, leading you past memorials to soldiers and information plaques describing the Australian mining squad's tunneling work. To better appreciate the significance of the site, consider reserving a guide, who will give you in-depth information on the battle and the military strategies played out there.

  • We had a guide on our battlefield tour. Very sombre feeling walking in the footsteps of the troops of WW1 and knowing so many lost their lives here. Also knowing that they remain buried here as well.

  • This was part of an afternoon 3 hour Salient tour found in the British Grenadier Bookshop. Amazing story to be told by the guide and to walk around the area where this happened truly remarkable...
